Diversity

Overview

 

Wendel Rosen represents a diverse range of individuals, businesses and public entities, and we believe that our attorneys and staff should reflect the diversity of our clients. Not only is it the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. Our diversity allows us to better understand our clients’ needs, to approach legal issues from a variety of perspectives, and to come up with better legal solutions that, ultimately, allow us to better serve you.

 

Wendel Rosen’s Diversity

At Wendel Rosen, we believe that talent isn’t limited by age, sex, race, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. Across all benchmarks, Wendel’s diversity ratios are higher than the averages for firms nationwide and of our size.

We’re keenly aware that diversity is a strength and this is reflected in our efforts to hire the best and brightest, regardless of background, for the simple reason that an inclusive workplace is a happy workplace, and a happy workplace is a more productive workplace.
